the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade? that is one of those issues that is never going to be entirely settled. you see ebbs and flows in public opinion on that. you see the general drift has been toward more restrictions on abortion rather than less. we will be debating that issue for generations to come. >> because of the obamacare provision that covers that has worked its way through the court's. the supreme court turned down a request to block that. the caller was suggesting concern. it does not look at there will be any possibility that is taken out. hobby lobby will refuse coverage. it will remain in the spotlight. it will not go away because there is resistance to it. caller: they touched on gun control. if they put more emphasis on the illegal sale of firearms across the border, in a criminal these fires a weapon does not have to go to a gun shop to get them. they are selling them out of the backs of vehicles and fans. youe is no limit on wherat can get your hands on. host: i am interested on what happens on a congressional level. guest: you have people talking about a comprehe

for life. nbc's tracie potts is live. tracie, this marks the supreme court's roe v. wade that legalized abortion. are the protests expected to be larger because of that? >> reporter: they are. the second time this week we've seen that on the national mall. it came because of the anniversary, but because of that, organizers moved this protest to friday so as not to conflict. but today, we do expect to see this pro-life march, this huge march, on the national mall. a lot of things have changed, though, in the last 40 years, especially in the last couple of years. there have been more than 150 new laws by states and local legislatures in just the past two years. 19 different states acting just last year to restrict abortion rights. it's one of the reasons why this group says it wants to speak up and try to push for the overturning of roe versus wade. but a brand-new nbc poll shows 7 out of 10 want roe versus wade to stay. we will see lawmakers at that event later today. tracie potts in washington. thanks so much for that. >>> well, we have new video of a dramatic swift water rescue that ha

the rights of the unborn. today we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of roe v wade. i do not know if you have anyone speaking on that topic, but we believe that the 50 million unborn human beings that were killed in the atrocity of abortion should be as important as slavery was back in the time of abraham lincoln. it is the right of everyone to have life and liberty. these unborn babies across the country are being killed. we have a pro-life charity and we are trying to call to attention a look at these innocent little ones and an urge for these women to choose life. over 50% of americans are pro- life now, that should be the number-one topic. you should be talking about a personhood amendment, just like lincoln talked about freeing the slaves. host: we will be talking about the agenda for the second term in the last half of "washington journal" this morning. we will talk about whether there could be another contraception fight like in the first term. the front page of "the washington times" this morning is on the abortion battle. an estimated total of 54 million pregnancies have been te
want to conclude today, since this week marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark case of roe v. wade, those of us who have been involved as a lawyer trying cases, civil cases such as roe v. wade was a civil case, those of us that have been involved as a judge as i was also a chief justice, we know that in order for a case to be right, that it can be heard in court, there must be a judiciable issue, such as in roe v. wade, but the person bringing the case has standing to bring the case, took years but we ultimately find out that at the time there was no standing. we find out from the person who was roe, fictitious name, she deeply regrets what had happened and that case has been responsible for the killing of millions of lives. and i have so many dear friends on the democratic side of the aisle, i know their hearts. they don't want people to get killed. they care about life. and so many on both sides of the aisle talk about trying to protect, quote, the most vulnerable among us, unquote. i would humbly submit there is no one more vulnerable than an unborn child. there is that chord th
these guys did. instead of getting down, they got better. dwyane wade worked on his core. lebron learned some post moves from hakim. batia came on board and they became a more complete team, got to know each other better and trust each other more. and they became more fun to watch. in game four against the thunder last year we saw lebron carried off the floor with cramps only to come back a few minutes later and hit ager of a three-pointer to put the heat ahead. we saw him pull off one of the great performances, dropping 45 points and had a scary look in his eye. we saw dwyane wade, the heart and soul of this team, continue to do whatever it takes to win, including leading the team in blocks. and at the post game press conferences he dressed well enough to land himself in gq magazine. show them your kicks here, dwyane. if any of you can pull this off other than dwyane wade, let me know. we saw chris bosh get injured but get healthy right at the perfect time and do outstanding work throughout the rest of the playoffs. and it wasn't just the big three. mike miller could barely walk. mike, you l
anniversary of a woman's guaranteed right to choose abortion this this country. it's roe v. wade and it ranks amo among the most divisive. that is saying something. and that's why thousands of abortions rights opponents are expected to brave this 20-degree weather on the national mall in washington today for what's being billed as the march for life. you're seeing it live right now at 11:37 eastern a.m., and it is very cold. the rally is going to officially get under way in a half hour. they turned up early. former gop rick santorum is going to be among the scheduled speakers at this event. all of this as the supreme court of colorado is being asked to take up a heart-rendering case that pits a catholic hospital against fundamental catholic teachi teachings. stay with me. here's the case. in 2006 a pregnant woman who was carrying twins had a heart attack and she did not survive more than an hour at the st. thomas moor hospital in canon city, southwest of colorado springs. she died. and the twins that she was carrying died as well. the woman's husband was very angry at why she died but more so
wade decision. charlie joins us from new york, on the republican line. caller: good morning. one morning, the first sergeant announced there were eliminations from the pt test. women could not do it. if you cannot pass your pt test, you cannot be promoted. do not give me the lie that standards are not going to be lowered. they will be. the problem is, we no longer have generals like george patton, matthew ridgway, curtis lemay, and douglas macarthur. that is the problem. host:, for the call, charlie. this is a headline based on the report looking at the issue of sexual harassment in the military and the focus of airforce leaders focusing on culture -- yesterday, general dempsey was asked about that culture of seco -- sexual harassment in the military. this is a portion of what he had to say. >> i believe it is because we have had separate classes of military personnel, at some level. it is far more complicated than that. when you had one part of the population that is designated as warriors, and another part that is designated as something else, i think that disparity begins to e
's march comes the same week marking 40 years since the roe v. wade u.s. supreme court decision legalizing a woman's right to abortion. meanwhile, activists from the group stop patriarchy.org staging a counterprotest today in d.c. as well. doug mckelway's live from the national mall and, doug, what can you tell us about the crowds behind you? >> reporter: you know, it's hard to gauge at this point, arthel. it looks a little bit smaller than in years past, but the program is just literally started moments ago, and this crowd has a way of filling in just at the last moment. is so i don't want to gauge the size of it yet. i think people are still arriving here, and it's growing and growing especially on this very, very cold day. we're expecting to hear from a lot of politicians in the next few moments or so. speaker john boehner will be speaking via video link, and we'll also be hearing live from former pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate rick santorum as well as present senator rand paul of kentucky. the pro-life movement is at a key juncture right now. one recent gallup poll whi
to commemorate the 40th anniversary of row v. wade, the landmark supreme court decision that formally recognized the woman's right regarding decisions on her reproductive health care. this came as a result of decades of relentless activism and litigation on the part of great women advocates. but today there are those that want to roll back those fundamental rights and turn back the clock on women's health care. we've seen them use the same tactics over and over again during the last 40 years. in fact, according to an institute, more than 40 laws were passed to restrict access to abortion in 19 states just this past year. that's why as we commemorate the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, it's more important than ever to commit ourselves to protecting these basic rights and ensure that women across our country have full control over their personal well-being and health and retain access to health care they require. thank you and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address th
that in. this week marked the anniversary of the roe v. wade decision. an interesting backdrop for a new bill proposed in new mexico where a republican state lawmaker wants a law that would punish a rape victim if she becomes pregnant from the attack and has an abortion. she would be charged with tampering with evidence. let me get your take on this, amy. i'll go to you first. >> yeah. i looked at the story, it was so strange. and i did a bit more research. in fact, that female lawmaker i should underscore, she said that that was very misinterpreted. and in fact, she has changed the language of the legislation that she's introducing there in new mexico. and from what i understand, her intent was to punish sex abusers who coerce their victim into getting an abortion, to cover up their crimes. now i don't know if this is because it was an issue that was brought to her by a constituent or it was an episode she saw on "law and order." i don't know. i don't live in new mexico. i think leaping all over her to disparage her, pillory her and villainize her is not the way pro-choice people should
and the gay-rights movement, could make this a mistake that we made four years ago with roe v wade, that we did not allow the democratic process, the legislative process, the social process of debate and acceptance and so on to run its course. we trust that with a ruling by the supreme court and we have been in the streets for over four years and probably will be for another 40 because we did not allow the legislative process to continue. if you did speak to those, thank you very much. guest: on the recess appointments -- host: what was the decision the caller was referring to? guest: the president's appointments during a recess period or unconstitutional. he waited for congress to be out for a couple of days and pushed through four confrontation -- controversial appointments to the new labor relations board and of -- and it includes the cordray appointment. the recess appointment clause was created for a different purpose. when i testified in congress, i said i believe that all these recess appointments or unconstitutional. the court of appeals actually agrees with that position. it unanim
that the estimates are 50 to 55 million unborn americans have been aborted since roe v. wade was decided. it is true of those who are at the end of their live who is will be treated under obamacare. i think it can lead to a disrespect for life more broadly. i think we need to do everything to infiltrate the respect for life which, frankly has been growing to the surprise of many. public opinion is moving toward the pro life direction in recent years. i think hopefully it will continue to move in that direction. i don't think it is a alba tross around our necks. if you look in swing districts where republicans lost. they did not lose because they were pro life. they lost because, you know, votes on taxes or spending or regulations or so forth. it is very rare to find republican politician who is have lost because they are pro life, i think. >> let's glance in on gay marriage. people say like us, you have to give up your view of marriage if you want to win another election. do you think they have a point? >> i don't think they do. i'm a supporter of traditional marriage. that is not disrespect for gay
